Fishing continues to be an important economic force in South Bristol, as does boatbuilding, although the latter on a smaller scale.

The docks in the Gut and up and down the Damariscotta River are busy with lobstermen loading gear, or unloading their catch.

Many of today's fishermen are the second or third generation of South Bristol men who have made the ocean their livelihood.
